Lorenzo Pellegrini, captain of Roma, assured this Thursday, after the 2-6 defeat suffered by his team in the first leg of the Europa League semifinals against Manchester United, that the Roma team will try “to do a feat” next week around the Olympic stadium.
“We had a great first half, at the restart I don’t know what happened. I say to the fans that on the return we will try to achieve the feat. Beyond what happened in the second half, we prepare the game as if it were the game of our lives. Until the referee whistles the end, we will fight, “said Pellegrini at the end of the Old Trafford game, speaking to” Sky Sport. “
Despite going 2-1 ahead at halftime, Roma sank at the restart and lost 2-6 to doublets by Uruguayan Edinson Cavani and Portuguese Bruno Fernandes and targets from Frenchman Paul Pogba and Englishman Mason Greenwood.
Pellegrini refused to take stock of the season at this time, assured that he does not “know” that Roma is still eliminated and defended the work of his coach, Portuguese Paulo Fonseca.
“There is nothing to say. Fonseca did and is following a path in which the team improves every day. He will receive criticism and so will we, it is correct that this is the case, “he said.
